AM and FM Radio Reception in St. Petersburg, Russia
Between 04 to 20 September 2009, I visited 11 countries in northern and eastern Europe as part of a tour group with Cosmos Tours.

Naturally, being a longwave, mediumwave, and FM broadcast-band DXer, I brought along two receivers and two digital audio recorders--a Sony ICF-SW7600GR, a 1981-era Realistic Am/FM/TV receiver (analog, for doing seamless band-scans on MW and FM), a Zoom H2 (hi-quality) and Olympus voice-recorder (low-fi).
Included herein are AM (MW) and FM Radio reception and (long-distance, night-time DX and dial-scans) via either of the two radios I brought, made in Saint Petersburg, Russia between 15-16 September 2009.
Also included here are recordings of AM and FM radio reception/DX in Vilnius, Lithuania (11-12 September 2009); Helsinki, Finland (17-18 Sept. 2009); and Stockholm, Sweden (18-19 Sept. 2009).
If you are wondering why I whisper in many of these recordings, it is because I did not wish to disturb my sleepy hotel roomate when I was in St. Petersburg, Russia, DXing at the Park Inn Hotel, Pulkovskaya.
(Best mediumwave (AM-band) DX reception was accomplished when the radios were placed against the hotel-room window.)
